Dave Matthews Band

No, no, Mama, now Devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
And the coins in their eyes represent the money they owe
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Louisiana bayou

Sweet girl, daddy done beat that girl like he's insane
Brother can't watch him beat that girl down again
So late one night cookin' up with a couple of friends
Swears his daddy never gonna see another day

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) Bring down a saint

No, no, Mama, the Devil done do-si-do
See two young boys lyin' dead by side of the road
Shame shame

Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild
Oh it's a shame to lose the light that shines (shame shame)
Oh it's a shame to lose your way as a child
Oh it's a shame to lose your

Money on the bed, but you ain't got to go
Sold your soul just tryin' to get over low
No empty pocket gonna keep you from gettin' yours
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) ?

No, no, Mama, Tryin' Devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road

(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to get with the pain
See there's nowhere to go

Louisiana bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Troubles do it again

Same old sold story again (Louisiana bayou)
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again

(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again

(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine

Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild (same old story again)
Oh it's a shame to lose the light that shines
Oh it's a shame to lose your way as a child
Oh (same old story again) it's a shame to lose your
Down by the bayou

Louisiana bayou

Louisiana bayou
